Part of bisexual+ community advocacy for Angel includes pushing for more spaces specifically for bi+ people. With this in mind, in 2021, Angel collaborated with Daralyse Lyons and Skye Kowaleski to co-found Bi+ Philly, a social group for bi+ people in the Philadelphia area to meet up and build community.

Philly Bi Visibility
In 2017, Angel began supporting Philly Bi Visibility by helping to spread the word about their second Bisexual Visibility Day Rally. A year later, she was invited to be one of the speakers at the 2018 Bisexual Visibility Day Rally (speech and transcript below). Most recently, Angel has supported their work by serving as part of the Philly Bi Visibility Pride planning committee to help coordinate the group’s first march in the Philly Pride Parade.

As part of the 2016-2017 Host Committee of the National LGBTQ Task Force’s Creating Change Conference, Angel worked with the Bisexual+ Hospitality Suite Committee to design a space within the conference where bi+ individuals could relax and feel safe. The Bi+ Hospitality Suite Committee gathered resources, planned activities, and manned the space during the three days of the conference in Philadelphia.
Most recently, Angel has supported the bi+ community at Creating Change by co-facilitating the Bi+ Institute and a Bi+ Caucus during the 2021 Creating Change Conference.

In September of 2016, Angel joined around 100 bisexual advocates, researchers, and community leaders in the third ever Bisexual Community Briefing held at the White House. This event, coordinated by BiNet USA, provided the impetus for later communal work Angel has participated in.
